TFT Galaxies New Traits, Champions & Items Revealed [Set 3]

Riot Games introduced fans to Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies, the highly anticipated third set for the auto-chess title. Not wanting the hype to dry out, Riot released new information that includes unique origins, champions, and mechanics ahead of next month’s launch.

The most notable feature to be unveiled in the new set so far was the expandable Galaxies mechanics that will replace elemental hexes from set 2. But finally, we get a chance to dive into the champions and traits involved in the new set!

All the specifics below are subject to change before TFT: Galaxies go live next month so take that into account. (Scroll to bottom to see a full list of all known TFT Galaxies Champions, Traits and Items)


TFT Star Guardians

Star Guardian is the first team composition that Riot will be adding to Set 3. It utilizes all six of the Star Guardians as a base, and they might just expand into a few diverse compositions, according to the development team. Every time one of them casts a spell, the trait grants mana to all the Star Guardians, placing emphasis on the trait being a very caster-heavy lineup.

Trait Effect: Whenever a Star Guardian casts their spell, distribute (3) 20 mana (6) 30 mana among all the other Star Guardians.

Star Guardian Champions

  • Poppy – Tier 1 (Star Guardian/Vanguard): Tanky Frontliner
  • Zoe – Tier 1 (Star Guardian/Sorcerer): Ranged CC
  • Ahri – Tier 2 (Star Guardian/Sorcerer): Ranged Spell Damage
  • Neeko – Tier 3 (Star Guardian/Protector): AOE CC
  • Syndra – Tier 3 (Star Guardian/Sorcerer): Ranged Spell Damage
  • Soraka – Tier 4 (Star Guardian/Mystic): Team Healing

Riot provided the previous images to showcase what a potential build could look like on set 3. Featuring Annie to round out the Trait for 6 Star Guardian and 4 Sorcerers. They also let slip another champion that can also make the Star Guardian line-up – Vel’Koz!

Developer’s notes:

How it works: Arguably the most stable version of the Star Guardian comp, it can be achieved at Level 7 and gives your whole team 40% spell power to boost their constant spell spam. Poppy and Annie provide a nice front line, Neeko CCs, while Ahri and Syndra do massive amounts of damage.

Why it works: We believe it’s important that every set has a few compositions that are pretty easy to understand and put together. Less experienced players can buy all the Star Guardians and still do very well. You’re going to be in a pretty good spot if you get them all, which is a core skill to understand.

That being said, there’s more depth to the Star Guardian Origin. You can go Protector if you need more front line, you can pivot into Mystics if there’s too much spell damage, and you can even get more creative since Tear of the Goddess and Spatula merge to make a new item that can turn any champion into a Star Guardian! Our favorite so far has been Star Guardian Vel’Koz.


TFT Cybernetic

Blademasters are back for the third set and highlight some returning champions along with some new ones to keep the trait fresh. However, a new trait, Cybernetic, gives the incentive to spread the wealth and equip as many champions as feasible with items, instead of stacking a hyper-carry with three. In regards to bonuses, the Cybernetics can be flexible by choosing either 3 or 6 units.

Trait Effect: Cybernetic champions with an item equipped gain (3) 300 health & 30 attack damage (6) 800 health & 80 attack damage.

The preceding three champions are cybernetic but need a few more undisclosed units to max out the trait’s bonus:

Cybernetic Champions

  • Leona – Tier 1 (Cybernetic/Vanguard): Tanky frontliner
  • Fiora – Tier 1 (Cybernetic/Blademaster): Fragile Melee DPS
  • Irelia – Tier 4 (Cybernetic/Mana-Reaver/Blademaster): Melee DPS

Blademaster: Blademasters have a (3) 25% (6) 50% chance on hit to attack two extra times.

Blademaster Champions

Xayah – Tier 1 (Celestial/Blademaster): Ranged DPS
Shen – Tier 2 (Chrono/Blademaster): Tanky frontliner
Yasuo – Tier 2 (Rebel/Blademaster): Melee DPS
Kayle – Tier 4 (Valkyrie/Blademaster): Ranged DPS

The developers select the above image to touch on what makes the two to scary!

How it works: A comp that’s all about empowering Irelia to be a massive carry, Cybernetic gives health and attack damage if the champ has at least one item on them. You can put items on Leona and Fiora to power them up and keep them useful all game, and then in the late game, load up Irelia to be your major item carrier. Backed up by 6 Blademaster (yes it’s back with some slight adjustments), she’ll be a monster.

Why it works: Cybernetic opens up a new option that we haven’t seen before, in that you need to spread out your items to maximize the benefit. The trait itself is VERY strong if you’re willing to put one item on each champion, so it becomes a fun puzzle to figure out which items get you the best return. Cybernetic is also a much more flexible origin, as it has a LOT of options on how to branch out. We expect it to be one of the more popular three-piece Origins.


TFT Mech-Pilot

Its Morphin Time TFT Set 3

Riot Games have never been afraid of pushing their innovative boundaries and that mentality is clearly shown with Teamfight Tactics: Set 3 Galaxies. If you’ve ever seen the Power Rangers before and always believed in It’s Morphin’ Time, then you’re in for an absolute treat with Mech-Pilots!

Mech-Pilot: (3) At the start of combat, three Mech-Pilot champs are merged into a Super Mech until it dies.

Here’s the teased trior that forms Mech-Pilots:

Mech-Pilot Champions

  • Annie – Tier 2 (Mech Pilot/Sorcerer): Frontline Spell Damage
  • Rumble – Tier 3 (Mech Pilot/Demolitionist): Frontline Spell Damage
  • Fizz – Tier 4 (Mech Pilot/Infiltrator): Backline CC & Damage

Demolitionist and Sorcerer are also revealed in the team composition Riot demonstrate below.

Demolitionist: (2) Demolitionist’s spells stun for 2.5 seconds.

Demolitionist Champions

  • Ziggs – Tier 1 (Rebel/Demolitionist): Ranged Spell Damage

Sorcerer: All allies gain (2) +15% (4) +40% (6) +120% increased Spell Power

Sorcerer Champions

  • Zoe – Tier 1 (Star Guardian/Sorcerer): Ranged CC spell
  • Ahri – Tier 2 (Star Guardian/Sorcerer): Ranged Spell Damage
  • Syndra – Tier 3 (Star Guardian/Sorcerer): Ranged Spell Damage

This team structure is undoubtedly a team effort according to the development team.

How it works: With this comp, Annie, Rumble, and Fizz combine together into a Super-Mech! This big tanky mech shares traits and stats from the pilots, so the higher star level they are, the stronger your mech. The super mech can also use up to three items, which makes for an interesting puzzle on how you itemize it. Then by including 4 sorcerers, your mech gains +40% spell power, and when your mech casts his giant AOE spell, it stuns everyone it hits for 2.5 seconds!

Why it works: From a thematic standpoint, we’re really excited to see a giant mech and the destruction it can cause. From a gameplay standpoint… we’re REALLY excited to be able to see a giant mech and the destruction it can cause! It’ll also be fun to see which items and traits synergize best with the mech. Its spell is REALLY big, but it’s also susceptible to CC. All of the different possibilities should lead to some really cool highlights!

Riot will do a deep-dive later this week into what they’ve learned from Rise of the Elements (just like they did with Set 1), and then Riot will excitedly reveal the rest of Teamfight Tactics: Galaxies during the first week of March.
